Although a wide variety of experimental rotary engines have been proposed over the years,' the first practical rotary internal combustion engine, the Wankel, was not successfully tested until The earliest engines used for generating mechanical power burned gas.

Gasoline, and lighter fractions of crude oil, became available in the late s and various types of carburetors were developed to vaporize the fuel and mix it with air. Before there were few problems with gasoline; though compression ratios were low 4 or less to avoid knock, the highly volatile fuel made starting easy and gave good cold weather performance. However, a serious crude oil shortage developed, and to meet the fivefold increase in gasoline demand between and , the yield from crude had to be raised.

Through the work of William Burton and his associates of Standard Oil of Indiana, a thermal cracking process was developed whereby heavier oils were heated under pressure and decomposed into less complex more volatile compounds.

These thermally cracked gasolines satisfied demand, but their higher boiling point range created cold weather starting problems. Fortunately, electrically driven starters, introduced in , came along just in time.

On the farm, kerosene was the logical fuel for internal combustion engines since it was used for heat and light. Many early farm engines had heated carburetors or vaporizers to enable them to operate with such a fuel. The period following World War I saw a tremendous advance in our understanding of how fuels affect combustion, and especially the problem of knock. These advances, and others, permitted fuels with better and better antiknock properties to be produced in large quantities; thus engine compression ratios steadily increased, improving power and efficiency.

These factors are, first, the need to control the automotive contribution to urban air pollution and, second, the need to achieve significant improvements in automotive fuel consumption. In , it was demonstrated by Prof.

Haagen-Smit that the smog problem there resulted from reactions between oxides of nitrogen and hydrocarbon compounds in the presence of sunlight. Diesel engines are a significant source of small soot or smoke particles, as well as hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. Table 1. As a result of these developments, emission standards for automobiles were introduced first in California, then nationwide in the United States, starting in the early s.

Emission standards in Japan and Europe, and for other engine applications, have followed. Substantial reductions in emissions from spark-ignition and diesel engines have been achieved. Both the use of catalysts in spark-ignition engine exhaust systems for emissions control and concern over the toxicity of lead antiknock additives have resulted in the reappearance of unleaded gasoline as a major part of the automotive fuels market.

Also, the maximum lead content in leaded gasoline has been substantially reduced. The emission-control requirements and these fuel developments have produced significant changes in the way internal combustion engines are designed and operated.

Internal combustion engines are also an important source of noise. At the end ot each chapter Highlights, Objective Type Questions, Theoretical Questions and Unsolved Examples have been added to make the book a complete unit in all respects.

After the piston has traveled a short distance upwards into the cylinder the exhaust valve or port closes; shortly the intake valve or transfer port closes as well. Compression: With both intake and exhaust closed the piston continues moving upwards compressing the charge and performing a work on it. As in the case of a 4-stroke engine, ignition starts just before the piston reaches TDC and the same consideration on the thermodynamics of the compression on the charge.

While a 4-stroke engine uses the piston as a positive displacement pump to accomplish scavenging taking 2 of the 4 strokes, a 2-stroke engine uses the last part of the power stroke and the first part of the compression stroke for combined intake and exhaust.

The work required to displace the charge and exhaust gases comes from either the crankcase or a separate blower. For scavenging, expulsion of burned gas and entry of fresh mix, two main approaches are described: Loop scavenging, and Uniflow scavenging, SAE news published in the s that 'Loop Scavenging' is better under any circumstance than Uniflow Scavenging. Instead the crankcase and the part of the cylinder below the piston is used as a pump.

The intake port is connected to the crankcase through a reed valve or a rotary disk valve driven by the engine.

For each cylinder a transfer port connects in one end to the crankcase and in the other end to the cylinder wall. The exhaust port is connected directly to the cylinder wall. The transfer and exhaust port are opened and closed by the piston. The reed valve opens when the crankcase pressure is slightly below intake pressure, to let it be filled with a new charge; this happens when the piston is moving upwards. When the piston is moving downwards the pressure in the crankcase increases and the reed valve closes promptly, then the charge in the crankcase is compressed.

When the piston is moving upwards, it uncovers the exhaust port and the transfer port and the higher pressure of the charge in the crankcase makes it enter the cylinder through the transfer port, blowing the exhaust gases. Lubrication is accomplished by adding 2-stroke oil to the fuel in small ratios.

Petroil refers to the mix of gasoline with the aforesaid oil. This kind of 2-stroke engines has a lower efficiency than comparable 4-strokes engines and release a more polluting exhaust gases for the following conditions: They use a total-loss lubrication system : all the lubricating oil is eventually burned along with the fuel.

There are conflicting requirements for scavenging: On one side, enough fresh charge needs to be introduced in each cycle to displace almost all the combustion gases but introducing too much of it means that a part of it gets in the exhaust. They must use the transfer port s as a carefully designed and placed nozzle so that a gas current is created in a way that it sweeps the whole cylinder before reaching the exhaust port so as to expel the combustion gases, but minimize the amount of charge exhausted.

In crankcase scavenged 2-stroke engines, exhaust and intake are performed mostly simultaneously and with the combustion chamber at its maximum volume. The main advantage of 2-stroke engines of this type is mechanical simplicity and a higher power-to-weight ratio than their 4-stroke counterparts. Despite having twice as many power strokes per cycle, less than twice the power of a comparable 4-stroke engine is attainable in practice.

In the US, 2-stroke engines were banned for road vehicles due to the pollution. Off-road only motorcycles are still often 2-stroke but are rarely road legal. However, many thousands of 2-stroke lawn maintenance engines are in use. An engine of this type uses ports or valves for intake and valves for exhaust, except opposed piston engines , which may also use ports for exhaust.

The blower is usually of the Roots-type but other types have been used too. This design is commonplace in CI engines, and has been occasionally used in SI engines. CI engines that use a blower typically use uniflow scavenging.

In this design the cylinder wall contains several intake ports placed uniformly spaced along the circumference just above the position that the piston crown reaches when at BDC. An exhaust valve or several like that of 4-stroke engines is used.

The final part of the intake manifold is an air sleeve which feeds the intake ports. The intake ports are placed at an horizontal angle to the cylinder wall I. The largest reciprocating IC are low speed CI engines of this type; they are used for marine propulsion see marine diesel engine or electric power generation and achieve the highest thermal efficiencies among internal combustion engines of any kind.

Some Diesel-electric locomotive engines operate on the 2-stroke cycle. The most powerful of them have a brake power of around 4.

Historical design[ edit ] Dugald Clerk developed the first two cycle engine in It used a separate cylinder which functioned as a pump in order to transfer the fuel mixture to the cylinder. The crankcase and the part of the cylinder below the exhaust port is used as a pump.

The carburetor then feeds the fuel mixture into the crankcase through a reed valve or a rotary disk valve driven by the engine. There are cast in ducts from the crankcase to the port in the cylinder to provide for intake and another from the exhaust port to the exhaust pipe.K Rajput Uploaded by balvinder. Despite having twice as many power strokes per cycle, less than twice the power of a comparable 4-stroke engine is attainable in practice.

In , an unpublished French patent issued in to Alphonse Beau de Rochas was found which described the principles of the four-stroke cycle. See the external links for a in-cylinder combustion video in a 2-stroke, optically accessible motorcycle engine.

Because there is no obstruction in the cylinder of the fuel to move directly out of the exhaust port prior to the piston rising far enough to close the port, early engines used a high domed piston to slow down the flow of fuel.
